    hi there. I don't have race seats but I first go to the car wash and use the steam cleaners. If that dosn't get the dirt out I then use a cleaner. I use one for fabric seats that you get from a supermarket. If that dosn't get it all out use a carpet cleaner but try it on a bit you can't see as it can mess it up badly. If that dosn't work you should take it to the pros. Hope that helps

                After a bad experience with a cheap mop, I decided that the second one should be better. And I decided to make my dream come true and buy a new mop. Can anyone here advise good brooms for hardwood floors? I am also wondering whether it is necessary to use a special cleanser, well, in general, any comments and tips on caring for the laminate. The mop is of particular interest. Thank you all for your advice and comments on the matter.

                  what does this have to do with cleaning seats? quit stealing people's threads

                  that being said, most recaros actually come apart pretty easily. ive done a TON of vw buckets, where i actually take the cloth off and hand wash them in the tub with detergent and grease remover, let em dry, and re-wrap them over the foams. its also a good time to make sure the foam isnt breaking down or splitting, and repair those bits if needed. you'd be shocked how much gunk comes out of the covers, even after steaming, if you put em in the tub!
                  I will drive no car faster than it can go.

                    I second this, although my only experience with Recaro's is my kids baby seat! The tub is a great idea though.

                    I once used a carpet doctor on my Soarer seats which worked really well. Just remember to get the car upholstery detergent.
